    Does the motor smell burnt?
    Sometimes the magnets attract metal parts into the motor that jam the armature.
    I would pull the motor apart and check.
    You have to bend two of the metal tabs on the end and the ends will pull off.
    If it's burnt up I have a replacement motor PM me your address and I'll send it.
    I have one of those that I repowered with an old Mantua power truck.
